Happy MLK Day, Bloggy Friends!
I hope you're having a good one. I'm cherishing this day for several reasons. Not only is it the eve of a major historic occasion, but it's also my very last day of winter vacation. Tomorrow I hit the books again! I think it will be a rewarding semester. I'm looking forward to all the new things I'm going to learn.
I am so excited for the inauguration tomorrow. Thankfully, the class that meets during the actual swearing-in decided to cancel. I'll be able to run home to watch his speech before jetting back to campus for my final two classes. It's going to be a lot of hassle, but I wouldn't miss it for the world! It will be such a monumental day in our nation's history. This is the type of progress I live for. I wasn't around when Martin Luther King was preaching out for Civil Rights in the 1960's, but I am proud to say that I am here to see his dream come true. Tomorrow it's happening in a major way. Yes we can!
I know Washington D.C. is seeing a surge in activity right now. Bill and Gary, have you guys noticed a change in the city over the last few days? More traffic? People on the street? An excitement in the air? All eyes are on you guys right now!
Before I leave I want to share with you another video from the wonderfully creative mind of Mr. Bill Fogle. He has made the first part in a video series chronicling gay man's obsession with the past. In the first segment, entitled "High Heels," he talks about his own obsession with the swing era of the 1940's and 50's. It's an interesting topic. Sometimes I find myself fantasizing about what life would have been like in the past, particularly the 1960's. I love the style of that era - the music, the fashion, the colorful, futuristic home decor. It seems like it would have been such an exciting time to be alive.
I hope you all have a great day. I'll chat with you soon!
